Women's LACE Conference

Our church had a women's conference this morning. We started off with muffins, fruit and coffee. Then we moved into the sanctuary to listen to Pam Rusher speak. She is a wonderful woman who I've known for many years. Her husband, Buck, was a surgeon who passed away last May from a brain tumor. They spent several years on the mission field in Mongolia. We got to know them well when we attended Central.
Next we had lunch, catered by Ann's Restaurant and several door prizes were handed out.
The afternoon speaker was a lady named Gianna Jessen. Her testimony is awesome. She was a saline-aborted baby who lived and has cerebal palsy. Her website: has more information on her ministry. She sings beautifully and is probably THE MOST HILARIOUS PERSON I'VE EVER HEARD!!! I loved the way she finds humor in almost everything. I can't wait to hear her again tomorrow at church!
The final door prize of the day was a flying tour over Jonesboro! My friend Susan won it!

btw, LACE stands for: ladies aspiring to Christian excellence
